Gentoo Another review of Gentoo 2006.1. In one respect, Gentoo Linux 2006.1 is the same as it's always been, except with newer software on the installation media. Beginning with version 2006.0, though, a graphical environment was added to the live CD along with an installation program that rarely worked properly. The good news is, the installer works reasonably well in Gentoo 2006.1; the bad news is, it's still quicker and easier to install by hand via the command line.

Quag7 is totally right, Gentoo it's not for everybody and it wasn't design to be so from the beginning. You must have the willing to give up GUIs and use the command line to configure your sistem. If that's a problem for you, then you shouldn't be installing Gentoo in the first place.

And generally I don't take so serious the reviews of people that install a distribution only for it's review.
